Today my car started making a strange noise. This noise gets far worse when stress is put on the engine(turning a/c on). It also gets worse for a second when moving the car from park to reverse, etc. I believe the noise is coming from the timing belt unless the actual noise is simply echoing around. The engine still runs normally besides when idling(not all the time does it run abnormally while idling) or extremely lightly pushing the throttle.
Do you
have the same problem?
